president obama says. voters are going to make up their mind on his four years of his record and what mitt romney eastern is. and the romney campaign, i think, falls in the trap of becoming sort of a speech creator of obama, you know? people like us should do that, it's perfectly appropriate, but as a political matter, people are going to make up their mind on the policies. obama speaks pretty well as a president, he makes some mistakes, other presidents have made plenty of mistakes. the liberals spent eight years thinking, hey, ronald reagan said something kind of wacky, that'll destroy his presidency, it didn't. my advice to the romney campaign, we should write blogposts and say, hey, can you believe obama said that? the romney campaign needs to criticize president obama's policies and say what they would do instead. jon: so you're saying that they need to be more forward looking instead of looking in the rearview mirror every week? >> yes. i think if you look at the polls in detail, if you look at the inside, some of the questions, people aren't happy with the way the country is, but th

, especially those that take a poll of likely voters, they've got president obama and governor romney pretty close. but doug schoen, now he's a pollster with 35 years of experience says we're doing the voters a major disservice by focusing on those polls. he says there's something missing. we'll have the full story for you, it will be one of our new at ten stories and doug will join us to talk about it, with us the full hour at ten o'clock. president obama continues to double down on green energy. smith electric received 32 million dollars of taxpayer grants to build a battery powered vehicle factory in kansas city. here is president obama visiting that plant in 2010. >> one of those decisions was to provide critical funding to promising innovative businesses like smith electric vehicles. and because we did, there's a thriving enterprise here instead of an empty, darkened warehouse. because of the grant that went to this company, we can hear the sounds of machines humming and people doing their work instead of just the ghostly silence of an emptied out building and the memory of workers who
worried about not only fending voters had voted for obama in 2008. they didn't want to sound like romney was being a jerk, but they were worried, too, pretty obviously, about what the establishment press was going to say. if romney came out and attacked the first black president on his record and went after him, what would people say? well, that strategy, the latest polling tells us, has not exactly been a bell ringer in ohio. so what you hear from romney is he gets to the must-win. it is an absolutely must-win state for him is this tough new tone, and not only is he talking about the economy as you heard him do there, but guess what's back? the debt clock. they've got the debt clock back, and they're talking a lot about how much president obama's policies cost, they're talking about the size and shape of government and, as you heard him doing very crisply there, we can't afford four more years, is the new romney message. and we can't -- america won't last through a trajectory of more spending, more debt, more taxes. megyn: all right. so he's going to get sharper in his tone, in his cont
voters aren't enthusiastic enough about president obama to go to the polls. he thinks voters are much more revved up about mitt romney. what do you think? >> certainly in virginia where there's a significant african-american population, it remains very much engaged. and one of the things that the obama campaign has been doing this year as it did in '08 is trying to be as visible as possible in areas where there are large numbers of african-americans though there is still a strong republican tendency. and the point of that exercise is to run as closely to romney in areas of the state where he should do exceptionally well as possible. >> jeff shapiro, thank you so much for being with us this morning. >> thank you. >>> there is a reason why virginia is a battle ground state. it's close race. but the president is inching forward. this is the average of recent polls. as of last week, more likely voters in virginia would choose president obama 50% to 44%. a new softer mitt romney is emerging on the campaign trail because of these numbers in part. maybe compassionate conservatism is back. al
. a new quinnipiac university poll of likely voters shows president obama leading mitt romney by four points, 49-45. >> last night in denver, romney was endorsed by local football hero john elway. romney told the crowd that the debates will be crucial to the campaign. >> these debates are an opportunity for each of us to describe the pathway forward for america that we would choose. and the american people are going to have to make their choices as to what kind of america they want. >> jan crawford is covering the romney campaign in denver. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, charlie. this is romney's moment. the campaign knows the stakes here. of course, he's done this before. there were those 23 debates in the republican primaries, but this is different. it's one-on-one, and part of his debate prep has been working on that head-to-head match-up with senator rob portman playing president obama. on the campaign plane the other day, romney came back to talk to reporters and i asked him point-blank if he thinks he can win. he said look, the president has been trying to fool people
those key issues right now are trending towards president obama in the voters' minds and people getting comfortable with the idea of a second term. >> gretchen: 40 days and counting and three debates. thanks. have a great day. >> you too. >> gretchen: police department going to the dogs. there is only one officer left. it's a police dog. a new way to celebrate your child's birthday. the man behind alligator pool parties here next i knew it'd be tough on our retirement savings, especially in this economy. but with three kids, being home more really helped. man: so we went to fidelity. we talked about where we were and what we could do. we changed our plan and did something about our economy. now we know where to go for help if things change again. call or come in today to take control of your personal economy. get free one-on-one help from america's retirement leader. for the spender who needs a little help saving. for adding "& sons." for the dreamer, planning an early escape. for the mother of the bride. for whoever you are, for whatever you're trying to achieve, pnc has technology, gu
it. according to the latest quinnipiac university/new york times/cbs news poll of likely voters, it's actually related -- >> no, it's not. >> president obama leads romney by 10 percentage points in ohio. no republican has lost and then won the presidency. the president is up nine points in florida and has opened up a 12-point lead in pennsylvania. in the same poll, president obama leads mitt romney in his handling of the economy in all three states. 51% of polled voters say the president would do the better job. >> okay, let's go back to the last slide, guys. and mark halperin, let's talk to you. i know you agree with me that the media is liberal. guess what? republicans have somehow managed to win despite that media liberal bias. you've said it repeatedly on this show. so despite that fact, mitt romney is not getting crushed in all three of these states because of the liberal media bias. what's happening there, and why is he losing so badly, especially in ohio? >> well, it's very unlikely the president will win those states by those margins, but these numbers are not out of line dr
, president obama leads mitt romney in his ndlif e ecomy ill estat. 51% of polled voters say the president would do the better job. >> okay, let's go back to the last slide, guys. and mark halperin, let's talk to you. i know you agree with me that the media is liberal. guess what? republicans have someh managed to win dpitehat a raas you've said it repeatedly on this show. so despite that fact, mitt romney is not getting crushed in all three of these states because of the liberal media bias. what's hapning the, and why is he lingoba especially in oh? >> well, it's very unlikely the president will win those states by those margins, but these numbers are not out of line dramatically with private polling and some other public polling. i think the biggest problem rit now remains him. he's not driving asient mee. the president does -- says something, the republicans get all excited about it. they treat it like a gaffe. they'll talk about it for a day. and then they'll move on to something else. the biggest danger to me right now for the republican party are two things. one is that you look athe
of the most recent polls in these two key battleground states. look at ohio first. likely voters choice for president you see it right there, john, 50% for president obama, 44% for romney. that's a nice lead for obama in the key battleground state of ohio. if you take a look at florida, you see right now in our poll of polls the average among the most recent polls in florida, 49% for obama, 45% for romney. the question to you, john, can romney win without winning ohio and florida? >> in a word, wolf. i took a walk over here to show. the answer is no. you just mentioned ohio and florida. states the president carried four years ago. states governor romney very much needs to win this time. go to the electoral map to show you why. final six weeks, 237 electoral votes strong or leaning the president's way. these are the toss up states. the golden states. forget the rest of them. if the president can keep that lead and carry florida, if the president can keep that lead and carry ohio, the race is to 270, wolf, that would be in two words game over. >> gloria, if you look at the strength that t
unlike the plan that governor romney put forth. amy, what do you think voters are thinking about in terms of the health care debate? >> i think mitt romney has it right in the sense that obama care is unpopular. pieces of it might be popular, but mitt romney's been campaigning that he would repeal obama care and replace it with pieces that are popular, but this whole idea about social issues i think is so fascinating and underreported that really it's the obama campaign and the democratic party that has tried to make this a social issues election. even turning questions of taxation into a question of fairness, not one of fiscal responsibility or sobriety because at the president himself said, you don't raise taxes in a recession, and we're still certainly struggling along in this economy. so taxation has been turned into a social issue. we saw in the mid-term election that 31% of gay men and women actually voted for the gop so. what did you see at the democratic convention? gay marriage being touted. finally, on women's issues. if you were to listen to the democratic party, apparently the
, of voters, gives romney the edge by a wide margin. leads president obama 55-41. that is 14 points, interesting. i don't know how they define middle class, but that's the result of the poll. and coming up in the ten o'clock hour, two big names in the republican party, rnc chairman, and karl rove coming up next hour. and i used to live in california, a beautiful state that has a great deal to offer, got it. it's now a horrible place to do business, job killing environmental laws, job killing regulations and as a result, people are leaving in droves. that story is our new at 10 story, the max exodus from the formerly golden state. and then our guy in california will join us about that exodus from california. let's go nicole, in the past we put blackberry maker rim on death watch. cue the-- ♪ >> nicole, is it right to put them on death watch? >> i don't know what to tell you. be very careful. they have the blackberry and the blackberry is it still a popular item. yes, it's losing market share to the snazzier iphone of course, however, it's still something people want. so, are peopl
is obama taking the lead for the first time in who voters trust going forward. >> and he doesn't have a message that is consistent. because in ohio, he confused his tax message. so if he is going to offer tax ve s amount of money because i'm going to eliminate deductions, but president obama actually didn't inease your taxes, which was a misstatement of his past -- in the last 48 hours, he has completely muddled his taxmessage, and you c dot rliann against an incumbent president who's popular. >> the romney people thought that this was going to be a referendum on barack oma and that they wouldn't have to put forward new ideas. here we have a situation where the president hasn't told us anything about what he's going to do in the second term. heet awit. you know, i had this thought the other day with the debates coming up. i can't remember a single thing that bill clinton said or did in the 1996 debates against bob dole. and i think that that is exact what barack obama'soal i or neew we >> and you know, joe, the thing that's so fascinating is that 've ended up, because both candidates
. the obama campaign has spent months and millions trying to convince voters that mitt romney is unethical. >> he won't release his tax returns before 2010. >> unprepared. >> my opponent and his running mate are new to foreign policy. >> unattached to reality. >> my thinking is maybe you haven't gotten around a lot. >> with all those alleged problems, surely he has no chance of prevailing against president obama in the debates, right? well, not according to the obama campaign. >> mitt romney i think has an advantage because he's been through 20 of these debates in the primaries over the last year. >> reporter: the romney team says president obama is weak on foreign policy. >> what we do not see is steady consistent american leadership. >> reporter: weak on the economy. >> he's over his head. and he's swimming in the wrong direction. >> reporter: and just plain weak overall. >> the president today threw in the white flag of surrender again. >> reporter: with all those weaknesses, surely he would be easy to beat in a debate, right? oh, no. not according to mitt romney. >> he's the president
's an unnecessary attempt to roll back voter rights. will many, many voters be confused and unable to comply? joining me now is john avlon. listen to mrs. obama over the weekend. >> we cannot let anyone discourage us from casting our ballots. we cannot make anyone make it feel unwelcome in the voting booth. it's up to us to make sure that in every election, every voice is heard and every vote is counted. that means making sure our laws preserve that right. monitoring the polls to make sure every eligible voter can exercise that right. >> so john, so many new laws. so many different requirements now. poll workers are going to have a field day trying to figure out what it all means. is there the potential for chaos at the polls come november? >> is there the potential? absolutely. we're changing the rules. that leads to a degree of uncertainty. people who haven't had to show id befo i.d. before in certain states will have to do so. some folks may be afraid of that. we have a tortured history of voting rights in this country. laws strike an emotional button. we have instances in the past of vot
for obama, 52-44, in ohio. that's significant. okay. now, did you know this? today is national voter registration day, the first ever national voter registration day. you have celebrities, you have civic organizations, grassroots groups, universities, all kinds of people encouraging folks to register and to commit to actually voting. and how is this for words of encouragement to latino americans. quote, we need for the latino community to stop the bs and understand that the latin community in america needs them to wake up and actually engage. i just don't think they understand how important it is that one vote actually does count. those strong words coming from my next guest, wilmer valderrama, actor, activist and the 2012 co-chair of voto latino. welcome. nice to meet you. >> thank you very much. how are you? >> good. i'm great. you say in that quote that latino americans, you know, may not understand that their votes actually count. why? >> yeah, i just think that a lot of it also comes from, i mean, heritage somehow. i think for the history of a lot of our culture in the united st
. as you said, i remember during past elections, every losing candidate has had this. the hillary voters in the 2008 primary had their own circle. they were convinced that the support for obama was way overstated. you were totally right about 2004, the 2002. like every election this happens, but the weird how this really happened in the last week was kind of remarkable. >> isn't this -- i think this is sort of a subset of a larger trend on the right? it's been going on for a really long time. there's a sort of combination of self-pity and sort of feeding the idea that they are victims of this massive conspiracy by the left to lie about everything and that they are truly the majority. i've been calling it the fun house mirror. i love your characterization of it even more. but there is this notion that everything is a lie. climate change is a lie. the idea that liberals are just lying to you all the time. this distrust of media, distrust of numbers, distrust of data. everything is a lie. >> it's also funny because a lot of the paul ryan supporters, it's not politics. it's math. liberals ta
